7:05 am
♪ >> reporter: fbi director james comey says the group isis has launched a social media campaign like no other. aimed at hundreds, if not more than a thousand followers here in the u.s. among them elton symptom on the seen here in new video. they are bombarded with two primary messages the fbi said. come join the islamic state in syria and iraq. if you can't, the message is to quote kill, kill, kill, wherever you are. >> they're shooting out into the ethersphere thousands of messages a day. over 90,000. a day. its to millions of people across the globe. ♪ >> reporter: they use rap music and video games to get their message across. they try to broaden their appeal by exploiting children and using this isis fighter with the model good looks. many of the isis productions are as polished as any commercial you'll see in the u.s.
7:06 am
>> this is sophisticated. this is madison avenue meets documentary film making meets news channel with p.r. sensibilities and marketing value. you're speaking to them in a language they understand. video, moving imagery, and music. >> reporter: the fbi has launched hundreds of investigations of suspected homegrown radicals, many involving isis. the fbi says the propaganda is proving effective, despite the fact it's all lies. masking death, rape, and slavery. george. >> such a big audience for the message. now we get the latest on deflategate. last night, tom brady spoke out for the first time since that bombshell report was released. he did his best to laugh off the tough questions. during his appearance in salem, massachusetts. ryan smith has the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, george. last night here at salem state, tom brady was in his element in front of a packed crowd chanting "mvp" as he walked in.
7:07 am
he shrugged off the scandal and he said the scandal wouldn't detract from his team's super bowl year. >> we earned and achieved everything we got. >> reporter: tom brady breaking his silence overnight to cheering supporters at massachusetts' salem state university. >> is the super bowl tainted? should there be an asterisk? >> what do you guys think? [ crowd booing ] >> reporter: the super bowl winner, at first coy about the report. accusing him of being generally aware, patriot staffers deliberately manipulated game day footballs. >> there is an elephant in the room. >> where? >> reporter: and then. downright evasive. even when pushed by jim gray on his reaction to the bombshell report. >> i don't have a reaction. i haven't had much time to digest it. when i do, i'll let you know how i feel. >> are you that slow a reader? >> my athletic career is better

7:09 am
but adding there's a lot of people out there that don't like tom brady. i'm okay with that. while he isn't addressing the scandal now directly, the nfl is considering what steps to take. george. >> let's talk about that now, thank you, ryan, with jesse palmer. welcome back this morning. so, hometown crowd. they loved everything he was saying. he was going to shake it off. at some point, is he going to have to say more? >> i think he is. i watched it live. i didn't expect him to say much. i watched it live. he's so media savvy. calm and cool. it's apparent whether he decides to fight this or accept any sort of responsibility, he'll get with his own counsel. we'll hear from him in the next couple of days. >> his agent blasted the report. saying it's full of holes. >> yeah not a fan of the investigation and strong language saying at one point he thought the nfl may have worked with the colts to present a sting operation. against the new england patriots. i think don yee said some interesting things. questioning the integrity of the investigation. according to him, the nfl is a
7:10 am
client of the investigative firm. therefore, was the investigation independent? was it unbiased? and secondly, apparently, tom brady's testimony was largely omitted from all this. that would have provided context to what happened. tom brady's testimony is something i would like to see made public. to give us all a better understanding of what happened. >> what about the nfl? what do you expect in terms of a punishment? >> if he's guilty. we're talking about the integrity of the game. i could see a fine. a suspension for a couple of games. something tom brady could appeal. nothing conclusive in the wells investigation. they talk about how tom brady more than probably had general awareness of what happened. in this country, you're innocent until proven guilty. i think it's a slippery slope. if you suspend or fine him heavily without hard core evidence. >> have not heard the last of it for sure. now to a scare on a flight from ft. lauderdale to new york. these pictures show the cabin filling up with smoke. pilots forced to make an emergency landing. david kerley is at reagan national with the details. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning,

7:12 am
the staff were absolutely amazing. >> never experienced anything like this. it was definitely the -- the most eventful situation that i have ever encountered flying. >> reporter: diaz tweeted thanks, pilots. never a dull day. robin, the faa is investigating that engine fire and the smoky cabin. >> never a dull day. have a good weekend. now to amy with the other top stories. another earthquake in texas. >> the biggest to hit texas in years. the latest in a string of quakes nationwide. it jolted north texas. a magnitude of 4.0, unusually strong for that area. a sharp increase in quakes in that region is attributed to fracking. a new study finds about 150 million people are threatened by earthquakes strong enough to cause damage. last week, a quake hit michigan, revealing a fault line. there is more scrutiny for baltimore police following the death of freddie gray. there's word that attorney

7:15 am
this morning, an all-out manhunt for these suspects. pulling off a brazen heist in the most unlikely places. a rural new hampshire home. their target, 63-year-old christine beebe. whose family owns a coin and collectible store. you could see the men right here apparently casing the house. the two men are waiting. once bebe opens the door, disarms the security system, the suspects attack. forcing her into the home, forcing her down. zip-tying her wrists. >> they brought her into the basement. in the basement, they zip-tied her to a support post and put a blanket over her head. >> reporter: police say the thieves demanded the combination to her safe, making off with $25,000 worth of loot and leaving her tied up for nine long hours. until a contractor doing work on the home found and rescued her. she's now in stable condition. >> it's discouraging to think that people are out there.
7:16 am
they're going to target a 63-year-old woman. >> reporter: investigators quickly tracking the sale of many of those stolen items to a pawnshop in new york city, using an app that tracks all transactions involving secondhand dealers and pawnshops. those suspects are still on the loose. we're told the woman is now recovering at the hospital. she's doing well. this shows how even with a security system in place, you have got to look around to make sure that someone is not hiding, lara. >> thank you, gio. we want to turn to a dramatic reunion overnight. a father and two young children have been found after going missing for two days during a camping trip. david wright has the story. >> hi. >> oh! >> reporter: overnight, an emotional reunion. nick and his children, 5-year-old nicky and 3-year-old mila found safe, after two days lost in the woods. >> we are so grateful to everyone who looked for us. i'm so sorry that i caused any worry.
7:17 am
>> reporter: the three had been camping when, on the way home tuesday, vlahos took the kids offroading nearby. as they were driving, the road gave out under their truck. the family stranded with no cell service. the woods too thick to signal. >> we had fires going. i had pink blankets up in trees. and yellow straps all over. we left bottles by the river. we did everything we could. >> reporter: he had his camping supplies with him. after two days, his resourcefulness paid off. >> i had a flashing, strobing light i should have started with the first night. i think that helped. >> reporter: rescuers air-lifted them to safety. bringing them together with relieved loved ones thursday night. >> we're real excited they're here. oh, what a -- what a relief. >> reporter: all three unhurt. and in good spirits. happy ending to a two-day ordeal. for "good morning america," david wright, abc news, new york. >> so glad everyone is okay. what a reunion.
